The Master of Business is based around a framework of ten IMI Diploma programmes – from generalist programmes such as the IMI Diploma in Management, to programmes that focus on specific areas of expertise, such as Business Finance or Strategy and Innovation. Each IMI Diploma programme is a nationally accredited, internationally recognised qualification in its own right ? and also serves as a stepping stone to a full Masters award.?

By completing any two IMI Diplomas and a Business Research Project, the candidate will earn 90 credits (the national standard for a Masters Qualification) and will be conferred the title ?Master of Business?. These steps can be completed in as little as two years, or in up to five years – whichever suits the needs of the organisation and the individual best. The IMI Diplomas and Master of Business are accredited by University College Cork – National University of Ireland, Cork.

Enrolment is now open for a selection of IMI Diplomas schedule for autumn 2013. Early registration is encouraged as class numbers are limited.?
